Tell your son congratulations!! There is nothing like the feeling you get when you get your first deer! He will remember that forever.
bmulley - Thank you for introducing your son to our sport. We need young hunters to insure the future of hunting. My daughter was drawn for deer & elk this year. She got close; "but no cigar". She had a good attitude about it though. She said it was a learning experience, and can't wait till next year.
Thats great I didn't get my first buck til I was 25 and had been hunting them since I was 13. Southern California is a tough place to tag out. My son is 7 and I can't wait to get him out after his first, got a few more years. How old is your son?
Thanks for all the comments, guys. You oughta have seen the smile on my face too! We both are still smiling. It's been great to share the experience with fellow hunters across our great nation. This forum is almost like sitting around the campfire after a great day of hunting, sharing our stories. It's been a great year for us. Arizona Jim, my son just turned 15. Take care, guys!
